Mumbo Jumbo

Hello Boogerbutts! Happy Autumn and Spring! Here's it's fall and I love, love, love it. Made baked vegan doughnuts all weekend long using Silikomart doughnut moulds. I LOVE this brand. Pictures to come as they're on another device that I can't access at the moment.

As for the 30-Day Get the Chub Outta Here, challenge. Started good, then I tanked. Now though, things are going well and nearly 15 pounds down (a bit over a stone). 

More than that though, the kitchen and work space are very, very different since we last chatted. Oh my gosh, writing bakes is so much easier these days however, the creativity lab where I shoot photos and chalk paint is needs an adjustment.

That's what I'm working on today. Getting dish done, maybe toss in a quick apple bake and then rebuild the photo/chalk paint area. 

Which might all sound like mumbo jumbo, especially without reference pictures. All to come in another post. Today, I wanted to pop in say Happy Autumn. Happy Spring. Hope you're eating well and we'll talk soon. 

Boogie Boogie & Happy Halloween!!!!

    You sound like you have been very busy. For a change (not). Congratulations on shifting that weight.

  6. I WISH it was Spring here. Calendar wise it is and things are blossoming all over the place (aaatchooo!), but the sunny days are rare. We have rain, more rain, downpours and misting rain, then rain again.

  15. Always tough to lose weight right before the holidays (though it's not a bad idea)...been trying it myself the last couple months (I think I'm down...7? 6?). The only thing that really seems to help is cutting waaay back on the beer/wine intake.
    ; )

    Hey, Whisk: I was wondering if you had any suggestions or old posts on a decent way to cook corned beef brisket. I just can't seem to get it right as far as cooking the thing to a tender, fall-apart consistency. Apologies, but your archive is a little dense these days!

    My best to you and yours!

    1. Hey JB! I don't drink but I've heard that it packs on the weight. Congrats on the 7 pounds down. Woohoo. Oh, I don't know much about corned beef brisket. I'm not familiar with brisket, I've never had it. I'm trying to think who I know that could help you. Hmm. If I come up with someone I will send you their channel. Wait, there's one channel, she does all kinds of stuff. Lemme check. She might have something here, there's a search on her channel. If she doesn't have that, she may have something else you like. Very good channel. https://www.youtube.com/c/FoodChannelLLL/videos
